The new details were revealed to the USA news network by a source who had read the transcript of an audio recording of the Saudi journalist's final moments.
It's unclear from the transcript who was on the other end of the line.
Kushner kept in touch with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman with text messages and phone calls even after the White House chief of staff in 2017 sought to have National Security Council staffers oversee the interactions, the paper reported, citing former U.S. officials and people briefed by the Saudi royal court.
As a result, the Trump administration, who have fostered increasingly warm ties with the Saudi kingdom, was put in an intractable bind as mounting pressures called for condemnation by Trump over the killing.
The transcript cited by CNN also contains the last words ever uttered by the slain journalist and a chilling description of his dismembering. "I can't breathe. I can't breathe". "Cutting", it reads, only confirming the previous reports that the journalist was suffocated and then cut into pieces.
"The Turkish authorities have not been as forthcoming as we believe they should have been", said Mr Al Jubeir, saying that Riyadh was presented with information that had already been leaked to the media. In November, the Turkish Daily Sabah newspaper reported that it took the killers about seven minutes to choke the journalist to death with a plastic bag placed over his head.Читайте также: PM May To Address Lawmakers Amid Postponed Brexit Vote Reports
"We have Saudi government officials that did this in the Saudi consulate in Turkey", Haley pointed out, stressing: "We can't give them a pass because that's not who America is".
They are said to have met on several occasions to handle the backlash over the controversial circumstances regarding the prominent journalist's death in which Kushner apparently advised Salman to "weather the storm".
But the ties between Kushner and Crown Prince Mohammed did not happen on their own. Lindsey Graham of SC and Todd Young of IN, and Democratic Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tennessee) said that he had "zero question" that the heir apparent was fully aware of the plot.
Still, a bipartisan group of senior United States senators last week introduced a resolution denouncing MBS for his alleged role in the murder of Khashoggi, as well as the war in Yemen and Riyadh's diplomatic standoff with Qatar.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
